Daniel Birnbaum

Philosophy and Art Education

Daniel Birnbaum (*1963 in Stockholm/SE) is the director of Acute Art, a VR production company, as well as Professor of Philosophy at Städelschule. From 2010 until the summer of 2018 he was the director of the Moderna Museet Stockholm. Prior to this he held the position of rector of the Städelschule between 2000–2010. Next to his directing of the Städelschule and Portikus, Daniel Birnbaum has been curatorially involved in biennials and projects in recent years: the 53rd and 50th Venice Biennale, the Moscow Biennials and as a committee member of the International Foundation Manifesta. In 2008, he was co-curator of the Triennial of Yokohama and curator of the 2nd Triennial of Turin. In the period between 2006 and 2007, he co-curated Airs de Paris at the Centre Pompidou and Uncertain States of America: American Art in the 3rd Millennium (with Hans-Ulrich Obrist), first shown at Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art in Oslo, and that after traveling to CCS Bard Galeries in New York saw its final manifestation at the Serpentine Gallery in London. A contributing editor of Artforum, he has published numerous books and essays on philosophy and art, both in the framework of Städelschule and Portikus, as well as external engagements, including The Hospitality of Presence: Problems of Otherness in Husserl’s Phenomenology (1998), with Carsten Höller the book Production (2000) and Chronology (2005). His first novel Dr. B was published at the Albert Bonnier Forlag in November 2018.
